I was using a Venue 11 Pro 7130. I found the brightness was decent in a tractor with a lot of windows and excellent in our combine when mounted in a corner up against the ceiling. Both devices are rated a max 400 nits brightness but I did find a review of each rating their brightness (7130 389 nits, 7350 365 nits) and according to those reviews the 7130 is a little brighter then the 7350 so that’s a negative for the 7350. The 7350’s cpu appears to be faster, using less power too. I don’t mind a slightly larger display, but I would like a little more resolution then too.
So one of the things I’m wondering about is charging, what charging options does the 7350 have? Some online pictures show a barrel jack of some kind but does that plug into the detachable keyboard and/or into the tablet directly?
Where is the tablet’s power connector? From pictures I’ve seen, I only saw one on the bottom for the docking station I think. So they use their annoying proprietary connectors? On my 7130 I could at least use a micro usb and a booster to feed it 19 ish volts.
Or go for the venue 11 pro 7140 with a 1.2GHz Intel Core M-5Y71 processor. It seems to be just as fast. My 7140 with M-5Y10c 0.8 GHz with 4 GB memory, runs AOG v4 sim with time number 5 to 7 (sometimes even 3) between frame update (frame count)
Edit: Left it on the table running for some time, and now the frame count is 10. I believe it is dut to the fan-les design, and the back became a little warmer, so maybe it would not matter if it is a 0.8 or 1.2 MHz processor, if it slows down to the same, due to temperature of cabinet/back of tablet. (eg in the sun in tractor)
